Lily: 百合花. What does Chinese lily painting mean? Lily flower is a famous fragrant flower since ancient times. Its fragrance is comparable to Qili fragrance. The flower is not only fragrant, but also crystal clear and elegant like the jade. Lilies most commonly mean devotion or purity, though meaning can vary by type of lily, culture, and color. Because of the Greek myth of Hera and Zeus, lilies are associated with rebirth and motherhood. In China, lilies are used in weddings because they are tied to 100 years of love. They are also tied to good luck. Assyrians and Babylonians associated lilies with the goddess of fertility, Ishtar. Christians associated lilies, especially Madonna lilies, with the Virgin Mary. While white lilies symbolize chastity and virtue – and were the symbol of the Virgin Mary's purity and her role of Queen of the Angels – as other varieties became popular, they brought with them additional meanings and symbolism as well. Lilies commonly grow in white, yellow, pink, red, and orange. White lilies symbolize purity and virtue. Pink (stargazer) lilies symbolize prosperity and abundance. Red lilies symbolize passion. Orange (tiger) lilies symbolize confidence, pride, and wealth. Yellow lilies symbolizes thankfulness and desire for enjoyment.We have many Chinese lily flower paintings that will mail directly from the artists that will save you 50% in price compare with your local store price.
